Pebble App Hits App Store in Time for First Smart Watch Deliveries

Posted in Apple News, Apps on 24/01/2013 by Chris Hauk


Pebble thought the iPhone app that is needed to unlock much of the e-paper smartwatch’s functionality might not be available during the first round of deliveries to the backers of the Kickstarter project. Luckily, they were wrong, and the app is available in the App Store just in time.



Pebble had previously suggested that the iPhone app might not be available in time for early deliveries of the watch, which set new records for a Kickstarter project in raising over $10 million in funding.

The Pebble wristwatch interacts with your iPhone via a Bluetooth link, displaying Caller ID, SMS and iMessage alerts, calendar reminders, email, Facebook, and Twitter messages.

The Pebble app is available FREE in the App Store. (DIRECT LINK)
